Take part in a scary run for charity
BRING your pumpkins and spooky attire to join in the Halloween Trick or Treat night walk or run tomorrow, to raise funds for the ongoing therapy costs of Dale Eldridge.
Dale sustained a traumatic brain injury in 2013 after being knocked off his motorcycle by a taxi.
The injury has affected his motor skills, speech and various other cognitive abilities.
With the assistance of his family and therapy sessions, his short-term memory has improved, he has regained his ability to speak, makes use of the right side of his body and walks with the assistance of a specialised gait trainer.
The funds raised will be put towards assisting with the rising costs of his therapy.
Your whole family is invited to join in the festivities at Slater’s Toy Magic in Berea, which will be abuzz with scary activity.
This year’s trails, which start at 6.30pm, will be scarier, darker and spookier than ever.
You can choose between a 1km night walk for R30, a 3km Halloweenie Dash or a 5km Scary Trail, costing R70 for children under seven and R80 for adults.
“It’s an event for the entire family focused on fun, fun and more fun! Flashlights and headlamps are compulsory for spook spotting,” event organiser Sharon Eldridge said.
Participants are invited to come dressed according to the Halloween theme but should wear reflective clothing so they can be seen in the dark.
There will be prizes for the best dressed adult and child, as well as lucky draw prizes and sweet treats.
T-shirts will be handed out to the first 350 entrants of the Halloweenie Dash and Scary Trail.
There will also be face painting, jumping castles, food stalls and late night shopping available at Slater’s.
You can register and enter at Slater’s, Sanook or Tribal Triathlon for the event.
